IS GOD IS by Aleshea Harris
Director and Producer. Cultivated a synergistic process around vulnerability, identity, and safety. Used the symbolism of imposing, "accessible" multimedia as an ode to the systems that have both failed and ostracized the twins, as well as a way to heighten expression for actors and experience for the audience. My vision was to focus on the tension between genres and the naturalist/surrealist juxtaposition posed in the play's structure. This served to push actors to heightened performances safely by creating a room of trust, and to ground the "larger than life" feel the story purports.
